I'VE GOT THE KEY OF THE DOOR,
NEVER BEEN 51 BEFORE!!
HOW can I be 51? I'm only 32 (in my head...!) Ah well, aging is mandatory, growing up is optional - and boy, am I doing my best to live up to that!! It is my birthday TODAY - I've been very spoiled :D This is from Mr LLJ, the Big O and G3.....but what is it???
See, rusty ol' scrap. Aren't I a lucky girl?? Lol... I'll show you a bit more..
Hang on a minute, rusty old garden shears??? Are the boys taking the mick???
Only kidding!! Isn't it fantastic? I LOVE hares, got a real thing about them. This beauty was created from recycled metal tools and bits by Amy Lancaster. Have a peek at her stuff at www.metalmenagerie.co.uk . I love her work, it's so clever how she sees the shape of an animal in old scrappy bits and pieces. Her chickens make me hoot! Or should that be cluck....
Ok, my desk....
I've got an order for two pegbags so I've dug out a few fabrics to choose from. These bags are going to have an across the body strap rather than a clothes hanger, at the request of the buyer. I've had to modify the design as the usual length bag would require gorilla arms to reach the pegs at the bottom of the bag!! It's working quite well - I may well do more in the future. What is my son's Prom tie doing there???? I promise you I haven't read 50 Shades yet *grin*!
Here's what's in those bowls....
A whole load of swivel clips!! Someone I know organises conferences and she had loads of lanyards leftover from holding ID cards - they came my way and jolly useful they will be for handbag charms and the like. They retail for about 60p each so that's saved some cash! These were also on the lanyards...
I have absolutely NO idea what I'm going to do with these but we had fun at LLJ Towers, squeezing the sides and pinging them across the room like tiddlywinks. The cats enjoyed that game, lol!!
Ah well, that's it from me - am off to drink champagne and eat cake. It's a tough job but someone's gotta do it... :D
